Adam grew up in a lower socio-economic neighborhood in Ashkelon. From a young age he was exposed to violence, drugs and dirty money. In 11th grade his life changed when he met his Ma'agalim mentor Shmuel Azran. 'Shmuel lent me a hand and directed me to pursue pre-military programs. Without his support I would no doubt consider less significant options, and pursued a less than desirable future.' Today, Adam, 24, is married and a loving father to his two amazing daughters. He works as a sales manager and a medical masseuse. He concludes 'I'm mainly happy that Ma'agalim influenced my life in the long-term'.
